Medexter Healthcare develops and markets knowledge-based systems for clinical decision support. The aim of these high-tech software solutions is to promote quality assurance and patient safety in diagnosis, therapy, prognosis, and patient management.
Given the growing complexity of medical data and processes, these systems have become indispensable. They save the effort of performing repetitive and laborious work steps, thus allowing physicians and medical personnel to devote more time and attention to patient care. The purposes of our innovative software solutions are three-fold:
- to safeguard medical quality and improve patient care,
- to allow comprehensive quality management that takes into account medical workflows and administrative conditions, and
- to achieve efficient and cost-effective utilization of the available resources.
